• Short Summary

    Guests in exotic fancy dress arrive for an eastern party held by photographer Baron.

  • Description

    Mayfair, London.

    Various shots of guests arriving for a party held by photographer Baron at his Mayfair studios (?). The theme is 'East of Istanbul' and all the guests are dressed in exotic fancy dress as slave girls, sheikh, Indian princesses and so on.

    We go inside the party and see the guests milling about. Actor James Robertson Justice has a falcon on his arm (slight jump on film here). Model Fiona Campbell-Walter is dressed as a slave-girl and is chained to a door handle by a man. Baron is not spotted!

    Note: great invitation to the party on file.
